AAR‘s appeal for foster carers


Passport Info on Line

As most people writing to Digame are using a computer to do so if they look at ‘Overseas British Passport Renewals’ they will find all information from UK government plus the forms to download.


(Actually only 38% of submissions are from computers, 62% use mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. DrLaptop)


Number plate registration

Further to the number plate problem, we’ve noticed that so far, the problem seems to concern foreigners who have become Spanish residents.

We became official French residents several years ago, have a left-hand drive car with French plates, but now as retirees, spend half our time driving back and forth between France and Spain. As somebody pointed out the other day, it would seem stupid to get Spanish plates whereas, as we don’t live here all year round.

Does anybody know what the Spanish law says about non-residents?

Please write to puchkauzon@gmail.com or call Paul on 634351754.

Thanks in advance. Paul

Quartet con Fuoco (Classical Music)

The Quartet is comprised of musicians from the Philharmonic Orchestra of Malaga. In the first part of their program they will interpret Quartet No. 1, in E minor, “De mi vida” by Bedřich Smetana, one of his most heartfelt and original scores, written in 1876. This is a semi-biographical work that sketches moments of his life. We’d like to highlight the viola solo at the beginning of the first movement of the “Allegro vivo appassionato”.

In the second part they will interpret the String Quartet nº 1, in G minor, op. 27 by Edvard Grieg. A work of undeniable beauty. Its premiere took place in Cologne between 1877/1878.
